Summertime Shifting

June 18, 2014 | Written with Love By: Shaina Leis

I was sure that after my official “launch” that I’d be working more than ever, but it’s just the opposite actually. All I’ve really wanted to do is listen to some good country music, be outdoors and plan a few summer getaways. And I must say, I feel more productive than ever. Even reading, a beloved activity of mine, has taken a back seat!

I don’t know what it is about summertime, but a slight shift has occurred and I’m fully embracing it. My body is telling me that this is not the time to “do,” but the time to RETREAT from the hustle, the time to REFLECT on how far I’ve come and what I’ve learned, and the time to RENEW my life from a fresh place.

I’ve created space to journal more, explore new interests, and do absolutely nothing! According to the society we live in, my “non-action” may seem unproductive, but we are in fact most productive when we are feeding our deeper self what it craves.

Listen to what your essential self wants. If organizing your closet is what it wants, go and do it! Follow what feels liberating. You’ll be making more progress than you realize.
